The Q&A Archives: How To Dry Roses

Question: I have two corsages of roses. One is white roses and the other is red roses. Could you tell me how to dry them?

Answer: The best way to preserve their color and shape is to use silica gel (this is actually a powder) which can be purchased in craft/floral design/dried flower shops. Read the directions on the container and follow them carefully. Be sure to purchase enough of the silica to cover the flowers as instructed on the label.
